Kool Aid .. Ohhhh Yeahhhh"Don't drink the Kool-Aid when it comes to marketing materials" is what my mother always told me. Well maybe not, but manufacturer's in many industries massage and manipulate many photos that go into those glossy catalogues.



I see alot of images during the year and it's always fun to find images that were obviously retouched and manipulated. Now for the sake of honesty. I had to dig pretty deep to find these three images. After looking at these pictures for awhile I think #3 is the original. What do you think?

Avante Ashlar#1 The Paving stone in this picture is. Avante Ashlar with brussels block and brussels block dimensional system.





Now it's Rivenstone


#2 What happened here. The paving surface in this picture is Rivenstone.




The wall changed on this one. Unigranite and Ledgestone now


#3 What happened here the pavement is the same (rivenstone). Now the retaining wall has a unigranite inset with Ledgestone coping. The giveaway, yellow furniture and purple tree.
